Perineural Injection Therapy
Perineural injection therapy uses small hypodermic needles at a shallow depth to treat peripheral nerve entrapments. Entrapments occur where the nerves pass through muscle or fascia. The peripheral nerves can become entrapped and a chronic constrictive injury (CCI) develops. The nerves can become enlarged/inflamed and start to generate pain. A simple solution of 5% Dextrose is used to treat the entrapment and allow the nerve to function normally again. Perineural is a very gentle treatment and even patients who are scared of needles can tolerate this treatment extremely well. Perineural may be able to assist with common conditions such as back, neck, or shoulder pain, as well as, sciatica, carpal tunnel, and tennis elbow.
Acupoint / Trigger Point Injections
Acupoint / Trigger Point Injections deal mainly with lingering muscular, referred nerve and fascia pain. A sterile solution containing either lidocaine, procaine or just saline is injection into the trigger point (traditional acupuncture point) with the intent to make the trigger point inactive and thereby alleviate the pain. Acupoint injections are used to treat many muscle groups, especially those in the arms, legs, lower back, and neck. Additionally, these kinds of injections may be able to treat or alleviate tension headaches and myofascial pain syndrome.
Acu-Prolotherapy involves the injection of an irritant solution into a joint space, weakened ligament, or tendon insertion to relieve pain. The intent is to improve and restore joint function and stability. Most commonly, dextrose (a sugar) is the solution used; procaine (a commonly used local anesthetic) and sodium bicarbonate are other commonly used agents. The injection is administered at joints or at tendons where they connect to bone.
